The CYO is an organization of the youth of our parish, guided by caring adult volunteers with the purpose of helping its members become ideal Catholics, loyal to God and country, and a credit to their Church, their community and themselves. This help is provided through a blend of five phases of programs and development: Spiritual, Cultural, Social, Athletic and Service. The CYO is for the youth of our parish, with activities and programs designed to highlight, enrich, and develop the special talents that our youth possess.
Our Visitation BVM CYO Priest-moderator is Father Michael Saban and Fran Greek is our Chief Adult Advisor. Please contact Fran Greek with any general questions regarding our program via email firstname.lastname@example.org
Welcome to Visitation BVM's CYO Program
All our sessions are available to Visitation BVM School and PREP students. You must be a registered member of our school or PREP classes to register and participate in our program.
All families participating in our CYO program are asked to volunteer in some capacity - Pee Wee, JV, and Varsity. Therefore at least one parent/guardian needs to have updated clearances. This is an Archdiocesan rule. Failure to comply will result in your child's removal from our program. Any questions regarding clearances should be directed to Amy Herm at email@example.com. Questions regarding the policy should be directed to our Chief Adult Advisor, Fran Greek, at firstname.lastname@example.org,
For Registration questions contact: Cheryll Fisher via email email@example.com
For Sports program questions contact our Athletic Director, Brendan Kilcoyne via email firstname.lastname@example.org
All of the Visitation's CYO Programs are avialable via Sports Illustrated Play by going to http://visitationbvm.siplay.com/site/ and following directions and logging in.
Please consider giving of your time and talent to assist our CYO program in any way that you can. The continued success and growth of this wonderful youth ministry depends upon each of us. Whether you are a parent of a pre-school child, a school-aged child, a high school student, an "empty nester", or have no children at all, the Visitation CYO can benefit from your involvement.
All volunteers working with any group that has contact with the youth of the parish in any way are required to attend a session of Protecting God's Children for Adults (VIRTUS) training which is required for all adults who volunteer at Visitation BVM Parish
For a list of the sites holding this training visit the Virtus website at www.virtus.org.
There are a number of training sessions being hosted in our area this fall.
